The WWE Hall of Famer shared his belief that the longtime New Day member should change up some of the comedic elements of his character because he thinks Big E would be better off in a more serious role in order to be a top-tier talent.
Big E recently spoke to the Bleacher Report to talk about Booker’s comments.
“This is not a shot at Booker at all. I am so thoroughly entertained by his career, but this man had a world title around his waist as King Booker doing a faux English accent. You know I mean? Let’s put things in perspective here.”
“I know Booker is a supporter, so this is not supposed to be a shot at him. We’ve had conversations too where he’s said some really nice things to me to my face, so I’m not here to take shots at him.”
Big E stated that he learned a lot from Booker T as he watched him as a kid and he meant so much to several wrestlers. He put him over for being a great talent and entertainer.
“But for me, it’s going to be about telling a story that makes sense. It doesn’t make sense to me to suddenly be serious.”
